We have long, long wondered why it is that white people enjoy so deeply to murder innocent black children.
Well, finally, we have found an answer: it is due to an aesthetic disliking for the color of their skin.
Let me just put that into perspective here: I personally really like the color green. The color I dislike? Purple. Because of this, I tend to not buy purple clothing. But would I shoot a baby if his skin was purple?
But whites who live in a white neighborhood do want blacks to die.
The racial biases of white members of a community have a direct link to the number of black people shot and killed by police officers in that same area, new research indicates.
A study published last year found that African Americans are almost three times more likely than white people to be killed by the police’s use of force. Indigenous Americans are also almost three times as likely to suffer such a fate, while Hispanic men are twice as likely.
Now, a new report suggests the biases and prejudices held by white residents in an area has a close correlation to the number of black people who will lose their lives at the hands of officers.
You see it isn’t just the cops that are evil: It is all whites.
The psychic hate-waves of the members of the community are projected onto the cops. And that’s how the unarmed children end up dead.
This is science.
“We expected many economic or demographic variables such as the overall wealth of an area, residential segregation, average levels of education in the area, or overall crime levels, to be involved,” said the report’s lead author, Eric Hehman.
Yet the researchers – Mr Hehman from Ryerson University in Toronto, Jessica Flake from Toronto’s York University, and Jimmy Calanchini of Germany’s Albert Ludwigs University of Freiburg – found implicit bias, or the strength of someone’s association between specific social groups and threat, was the primary indictor as to the level of lethal force.
Specifically, they added, regional implicit biases toward black people, or the implicit stereotypical association between black people and weapons, predicted African Americans being more likely to be killed by police. Where these biases were stronger, African-Americans were more likely to be killed by police.
And what are these biases based on?
Well, racists will claim that it is due to the fact that a black is 27 times more likely to attack a white than the other way around, according to federal crime statistics.
However, the fact that you are 27 times more likely to be attacked than no attack does not mean you are likely to be attacked.
That’s a racist canard.
“[The results] indicate that this is not specifically a problem of police officers, but reveals that there is something about the broader communities and contexts in which these officers make speeded, life and death decisions that is associated with killing more African-Americans,” said Mr Hehman.
The report, published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science (SPPS), considered the ways in which attitudes and stereotypes can spread through conversations, facial expressions and even body language.
“To the extent that police officer are exposed to the biases of their fellow residents in their region, they may adopt those attitudes themselves,” the report says.
“Accordingly, one possibility is that prevailing regional biases might shape police officers own attitudes and their behaviour on the job are a result of those attitudes.”
As part of their research, Mr Hehman and colleagues looked at use of lethal force against whites and blacks, and linked it with bias data from Project Implicit at Harvard, a non-profit group attacked to the university that seeks to educate the public about hidden biases and to provide a “virtual laboratory” for collecting data, and demographics from the 2010 US Census.
In all, they looked at 875 deaths from January 1, 2015 to September 30, 2015. Among these data, black people represented 22.76 per cent of all deaths, but made up just 11.76 per cent of the population.
Two times more likely.
And yet they are zero times more likely to violently attack.
Or 27 times.
And maybe they’re 98 times more likely to get arrested for shooting in NYC.
The point is: we have finally gotten to the bottom of the hate epidemic: it is an aesthetic distaste for the color of the skin.
It’s all implicit.
